Wireless Unleashed Launches

Wireless Unleashed Launches.

Today, Kevin Werbach, Andrew Odlyzko, Clay Shirky, and David Isenberg launched a group weblog on unlicensed wireless issues.

The site focuses on the benefits of reallocating low-frequency wireless capacity from broadcasting to unlicensed applications, both here and around the world. There is a huge amount of capacity which could be used for two-way applications like broadband to the home, but which is locked up in broadcast allocations based on 1950s technology. Freeing up that capacity could create massive opportunities for innovation, and could dramatically lower the costs of wireless connectivity in developing countries. The blog will serve as a sounding board for our commentary on this issue. We will be writing whitepapers as well. [Smart Mobs]
